Gaudete Sunday

Today, the third Sunday of Advent is Gaudete Sunday, the 'pink candle' Sunday. Gaudete is a command ordering us to rejoice! In these days of penance and preparation leading up to the feast of our Savior's birth, we are reminded of the joy that is to come. It can also serve as a "begin again" point, for those of us who are not doing too well in our advent preparations. Did your priest wear pink/ rose coloured vestments today? Today's hymn will  have to be Gaudete.
